Japan Declares Korina Sanchez Persona Non Grata
TOKYO, Japan — Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe declared earlier Monday, Filipino broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez, persona non grata, for "wishing ill will against others."
Abe, speaking in public after his meeting with officials of Japan Meteorological Agency regarding typhoon Hagupit (Ruby), said that for a public figure such as Sanchez, to say such things towards Japan; is an act "definitely unbecoming of a news anchor, let alone an Interior Ministry’s wife".
"I am very saddened to hear reports of schadenfreude coming from a TV anchor, who just last year, was was put in her place by Mr. Anderson Cooper of CNN," said Abe. "That is why without a second thought, I am declaring wholeheartedly Ms. Korina Sanchez of the Philippines, as an unwelcome person anywhere in Japan."
On the Wednesday, December 3, newscast of ABS-CBN’s TV Patrol, the network’s chief correspondent and veteran anchor said she hoped Typhoon Ruby (international name Hagupit) would hit Japan instead of the Philippines, and that Filipinos could still pray the typhoon away.
De Castro then remarks, "Sana ay hati na lang tayo." (I wish we could split [the typhoon’s impact.])
